Notice and Disclaimer:
The purpose of the information on this site is to assist members and other interested parties in locating the burial spaces of possible relatives. However, the information provided about family names and locations, at all except the Westlawn Cemetery, was developed by volunteers who assembled the information by physical inspection without any information from the cemetery or its records. Accordingly, neither JGSI, the Cemetery or any of the volunteers warrant or certify the accuracy of the names or locations. It is strongly recommended that anyone who finds information that may be of interest personally visit the Cemetery before reaching any final conclusions.

JGSI is looking for additional indexing projects of the Chicago Jewish community. If you can suggest other records that should be indexed, or want to volunteer, e-mail us at
